Sofie Bear would have been 12 years old yesterday. Here she is with Mr. Nine from a few years back. Nine would have been 12 this coming February. They passed too young at 11 years old. I miss them both a whole lot and I am thankful I got to spend so many years with them.
Memories are a double-edged sword: both sweet and painful at the same time.*
